Wonderful recipe!! It took some effort but it truly was well worth it! I took the advice of someone else and boiled the peeled, cubed, potato in the chicken broth while i sauteed the onion, garlic, and also a rib of celery. I also halved the basil, added 1 tbsp of butter to the bacon drippings for sauteeing, and added 1/4 c. sour cream in addition to the half and half. Afer I finished making it, I put the whole thing in a large crock pot (I made it for a work event) and topped it with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, bacon crumbles, and chives. This was the best soup that I've ever made PERIOD! For the next event I may get fancy and pour it into hollowed out sour bread bowls (you can get them for less than $2 a piece at Panera). You've gotta try this recipe!!!
